Description

Start at the base of the large pointed block about 5 feet right of Popeye's. From the top of the block, climb straight up the middle of the blocky V-shaped roof using crimps and ledges. Go left of the overhanging block above to easier ground above.

Location

Start about 5' right of Popeye's and 10' left of Brutus.

Protection

Toprope anchor on the big block to climber's right of the large ledge 10' below the top, using a very long static line. You can use this same anchor for all routes from Popeye's to Olive Oyl. Be sure your master point hangs over the lip to avoid abrasion and rope drag. Rappel down so you can redirect the rope around the appropriate blocks and notches. The route also shares a 2 bolt anchor with Popeye's (no rings or quick links).
